EDITORS’ NOTES

Disney’s feline fantasy was also the first collaboration between Tim Rice and Elton John. Combining African influences with Rice’s plainspoken yet poetic lyrics, the pair’s songs work just as well without visuals, whether sung by the cast—including an amazing Nathan Lane, who takes lead on “Hakuna Matata”—or John himself. (The cast recording of "Can You Feel the Love Tonight" is a particularly buoyant take on the Oscar-winning hit.) Portions of Hans Zimmer’s sweeping score round out the album with appropriately cinematic flair.

The best Lion King soundtrack

This is the best one. The 2nd movie Simba’s Pride is not great. The music is alright but the movie is better. This one is different. Great classic movie with a great soundtrack. Definitely worth it if you are a fan of The Lion King like me.
